Bakersfield Californian

Specialized care is the name of the game for Kern Medical Center’s new neurological intensive care unit.

The center, reputed to be the first of its kind in Kern County, brings together doctors, staff and equipment specifically for the purpose of treating brain or spinal cord injuries, infections of the brain and other neurological diseases.

“We tried to look for something unique that there’s a gap for in the community,” said Erica Easton, executive director of the Kern Medical Center Foundation.
